Tuberculosis, also known as Koch’s infection and TB is a much misunderstood disease of the respiratory tract. Previously thought to be incurable, tuberculosis is actually curable with proper medical attention and care. A bacterial disease caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis, TB spreads through inhalation of the droplets from the cough or sneezes of an affected person. It mainly affects the lungs, but may spread to include any part of the human body including the nervous system.
TB is treated with a course of antibiotics that may last anywhere from six months to two years. It is important to note that once on a course of TB medication; one should complete the entire course and not let off mid-way. Doing so gives rise to drug resistant TB strains that are incurable.
Signs and symptoms of tuberculosis include:
i. Constant coughing lasting more than three weeks
ii. Cough that brings up phlegm, which, on occasion may even be bloody
iii. Weight loss
iv. Night sweats
vi. Fatigue and tiredness
vii. Loss of appetite
viii. Inexplicable swellings that do not subside even after several weeks
